GLENN: Welcome to the program. Jason Buttrill is joining us. He is my national security adviser and -- and helping me with a show that is on tonight. We're bringing the chalkboard back out for a lesson on North Korea. Not only what's possibly coming and what it means, but also the history of North Korea. And this is -- this is why Russia transformed, or the Soviet Union transformed, is because they were afraid of becoming something like North Korea is now, a very dangerous state.
JASON: And a lot of people, I think -- Kim Jong-un is basically like a punch line to most people. And they make it pretty easy. They've got some pretty hilarious stuff about the guy. You know, his body is so well in tune. He never has to use the bathroom.
GLENN: And they believe it.
JASON: They completely believe it.
GLENN: They believe he was brought in as a baby by a dove and was greeted by a double rainbow.
GLENN: I mean, they believe that.
JASON: When his father supposedly was born, a star was created in the sky. And the winter instantly turned to spring.
JASON: It goes beyond imagination. They actually think he's a god.
PAT: And they believe his birth is celebrated worldwide.
JASON: Oh, yeah. They're the good guys. They're not evil at all. It's everyone else that is.
JASON: But I don't think most people understand that. But there's some very interesting reasons why this evolution took place and why he is the way he is.
PAT: He really did golf an 18 one time.
GLENN: Oh, he was three.
GLENN: He learned how to play golf at three.
PAT: Yeah. And he hit a hole in one on every hole.
GLENN: Yeah, but that was a little later. His first game, he did hit a hole in one. But he was a little older.
PAT: But not on every single hole.
GLENN: Yeah, not on every single hole until he was maybe eight.
JASON: But the most important thing, his dad invented the hamburger supposedly. He, of course, didn't call it that. He coined the very catchy name "double bread with meat," which didn't take hold out here. But I guess --
STU: Much more descriptive though. I mean, double bread with meat is -- it's just plainly a better descriptive name. They nailed it.
JASON: It is, yeah. So there's a very real reason why this is not funny to them. And they've been preparing for war for 16 years.
GLENN: With the United States.
JASON: Specifically with the United States. And I think a lot of people don't realize, okay, this is not going to be another Iraq. This is not going to be an Afghanistan. We're going to war with a country that has been preparing for this day for 60 years.
GLENN: You believe we are going to war?
JASON: So this is the thing, it depends on this next nuclear test in North Korea, which analysts say is imminent. I think it could have happened days ago. I bet they wanted to do it on the anniversary of last week, but things probably happened that delayed it.
JASON: They just came out and said yesterday that they're going to continue to do tests. They will not be deterred. They're going to continue to do it. It depends on what this test is. And it depends on what our intelligence says it is. Now, if this test is for a miniaturized nuclear device that could be put on top of a missile --
GLENN: How do we know that? How will we know that?
JASON: That's a good question. Only the intelligence community will know.
GLENN: The -- and whether you believe the intelligence community. There was a really disturbing situation that happened at the White House yesterday. Some of the senators walked out, rolled their eyes and said, "Well, that was interesting." Apparently, it was a mess. But a senior Trump adviser has come out and said, "We know how to advise the president." And it will make your blood run cold. But it will explain an awful lot. If this senior Trump adviser -- this is not an anti-Trump person, this is a pro-Trump person. If they're accurately telling us what's happening in the White House, you better pray to God we have the right advisers around this president.
